City missed the chance to claim the title last weekend when they let a two-goal lead slip at home to United, Paul Pogba scoring twice in a stunning comeback win for Jose Mourinho's men.

"You can not say that Manchester City won the title because Manchester United lost a game".

Mourinho greeted West Brom caretaker manager Darren Moore with a warm hug after the two teams had made their way onto the pitch.

Jose Mourinho said: "It was a bad reaction after the City victory, the outcome of that is complicated football". The best team by a street, they entered 2018 14 points clear and never remotely looked like being caught.

Victory for West Brom moves them up to 24 points, but they remain nine away from safety with just four games remaining. It is even more important for the next games and we know we have to compete until the last week.

"Everything was slow, one more flick, trick, turn".

"They always had time to organise themselves".

In situations such as these - with United being second in the table - Ferguson may have trusted his players to play with more freedom and blow West Brom away, which begs the question of whether Mourinho has the same faith in his squad to deliver.

"City were the best team, sooner or later they would get the points, so no dramas when the best team wins the league".

Guardiola might not have seen Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute winning goal at Old Trafford because he was playing golf with his son instead of watching the match. Vincent Kompany, trailed by the cameras of Manchester City's in-house television station, was with his family.

Goalkeeper Ederson Moraes was watching former club Benfica play Porto in the Portuguese league.

Instead of City likely clinching the title at home to Swansea next weekend, that game at Etihad Stadium will now be a party and a celebration of one of the Premier League's finest teams which could yet break a slew of records by the end of the season.

Manchester City have won the Premier League title with five games remaining; equalling the English top-flight record.

United, meanwhile, will attempt to hold onto second place and automatic qualification into the Champions League group stages next season.
